Jinggangshan Mountain

Mountain Jinggangshan, Nanchang Attractions, Nanchang Travel GuideJinggangshan Mountains is located 180km (110 miles) from Nanchang, and is situated in Hunan and Jiangxi provinces. This lush mountain area is known as "the cradle of the Chinese Revolution" because of the crucial role it played in the early Communist movement.

In 1927, after suffering crushing losses in urban areas, a weakened Communist force led by Mao Zedong sought refuge in Jinggangshan's dense forests. Mao's small band was soon joined by the Communist army led by Zhu De and Zhou Enlai who had been unsuccessful after the Nanchang Uprising as well as Peng Dehuai and his legion. These troops and their leaders joined forces in Ciping, a village of Jinggangshan and began the Long March.

The government has restored most of the famous landmarks at Ciping and tourists can also visit the Jinggangshan Mountain Revolutionary Museum (jinggangshan geming bowuguan).
